I don't think we can get a true answer to this question because of the changing levels of interest and talent of his band mates through the different era's.His technical chops and knowledge might have grown in the 80's,but pair that with a bored Phil,cheesy keyboards and a less than stellar set list,how do you compare that to the 60's or early to mid 70's version of the band that on a given night could be brilliant.

Good pt; that's another aspect that is tough to evaluate...may be why he was happier (it seems) to work with others in solo efforts (ie, he, and the other DEAD members, were getting bored/etc with the band, and so forth).
